Top 5 Online Marketing Myths -- Myth #2: Form Is More Important Than Function

Now for #2 of my favorite online marketing myths:

Myth #2: Form Is More Important Than Function

These days a professionally designed, search engine optimized, and mobile responsive website is the standard.

Gone are the “print” days when the best design (in the eyes of a potentially biased decision maker) was the key requirement for your website.  In fact, effective websites are no longer focused on the products and services that one sells.  Rather, the best strategies have everything to do with what your ideal visitor is interested in and making it easy for them to buy from your company.

The days of relevancy and functionality are upon all of us in this global digital marketplace.  We live in a world of choices and you know from your own experience that if a website cannot let a visitor know in less than 2 seconds that they are at the right place, in less than 5 seconds that the business can help them, and in less than 2 minutes how so that they can take action; then that visitor has already left that site for someone else. It does not matter whether visitors are buying or consuming products, services, or information; consumers all have choices and are more deliberate than ever before.

What are your favorite myths?
